This effortless gesture can put a smile on someone’s face with just a simple message on a rock. Kindness Rocks Project motto is “One Message at just the right moment can change someone’s entire day, outlook, life”.  Megan Murphy, the founder of the Kindness Rocks Project started leaving messages and inspirational words on rocks and leaving on the beaches of Cape Cod to find and to make a difference in their life.

Finding my first painted rock brought a burst of excitement and happiness that I just had to share! Why not brighten someone’s day by giving them a painted rock with a cheerful message? It’s a simple way to add a little joy to their day, put a spring in their step, and warmth in their heart.
